Residential Floor Gets Seal of Approval

Wideshot of client's front entryway, cleaning in progress for LVT flooring

Our residential cleaning services were called into action by Karndean after their clients had a slippy situation…

We’re not just commercial carpet cleaners. We’re always delighted to take on residential work as well, from carpets to wooden floors to luxury vinyl tiles.

When Karndean (a manufacturer of luxury vinyl tiles) discovered that a customer’s LVT flooring was registering a slip resistance of R10, they recognised it as a safety hazard and reached out to us to seal the flooring.

Drawing on our expertise and skill, we were confident we could rise to the challenge and help these clients live with safe and secure flooring. We only use high-quality products in our cleaning services, so our clients are always reassured they’re receiving excellent service.

Sealing a Slippery Floor

This job was a challenging one as the vinyl tiles measured at 60sqm across the property, spreading over the bottom floor from the front entryway to the rear living room. We got to work immediately and began cleaning the unsafe floor, stripping it of any residual dust or dirt.

You wouldn’t want any grime trapped on your flooring for a long period of time, so once we were certain it had all been washed away, we dried off the LVT floor and began the next step.

LEFT: Harry Dyson curing floor with UV light. RIGHT: Floor being cured with UV light.

Using two coats of PU sealant by Dr Shutz, we made sure to cover every inch of the floor space and ensure even coverage across the tiles. Finally, we cured the PU sealant using UV light so the floor could be walked on straight away, as opposed to waiting 12 hours for it to naturally cure. The job only took one day because of this, so the client was able to enjoy their non-slippery flooring as soon as we were done and packed up.

The PU sealant job comes with a three-year warranty when professionally applied, so the client was happy knowing they could enjoy three guaranteed years of luxury vinyl tiles that are safe to walk on.

It’s satisfying jobs like these that we love, and seeing clients happy after we’re done makes it all the better!

“I had 2 sofa frames and 2 rugs cleaned by Paul Dyson. I could not fault the service and the results. Very courteous, professional and friendly. I also had a couple of stains on another carpet that they offered to do a spot clean at no extra charge. I will definitely use Paul Dyson again, and cannot recommend them highly enough.”

"Absolutely brilliant service. Pauls son Harry came this morning and throughly cleaned the carpets for me at a rental property in Gateshead. The previous tenant had allowed her cat to soil the carpet do a disgusting level. We have cleaned the house and the final job of cleaning and treating the carpets was down to Harry........all smells are now eradicated and a certificated treatment added to ensure the safety of future tenants.......can't recommend this company higher."
